I feel for you Stacey but not everyone in Colo Springs has a criminal record - you must be hanging around the wrong people. You need help - emotional, physical and financial and there are place to help you here in Colo Springs. Another option is to move someplace else and start over. Good luck. You make a choice every day to live for the future or be tormented by the past. Make a better choice today.

EPC Citizen: I am alert to DHS and what they do (or don't do). You are right. DHS in El Paso County is primarily interested in what brings in the money rather than what is good for the child or senior. If it's a money-maker, they will involve themselves to the point of annoyance. Quite frankly, for the most part, they do NOT apply necessary focus on genuine abuse cases. They would rather zoom in on false calls and 'claims' of abuse. Even when the individual who calls in on those fabricated abuse calls, they are not held responsible for taking up critical time for REAL cases that require immediate attention. I know this from experience. The more DHS and CPS can adopt a child out, the more money they make. Read between the lines and you can figure out how they 'decide' which calls to answer and which calls to ignore. It's sad and they should be held accountable!


Citizen, you are so right and I am learning all of this the hard way. It is all about money. They DO NOT care.

I know all about cps in colorado; the advice I can offer is to do all of your own research; Penrose library in the lower floor is a set of books; dhs/cps proceedural manual & the colorado reporter that is the federal dependancy/neglect case's that superceede state case's; also, rememder these 2 very powerful words; JURY TRIAL, remember 12 jurers, its your constitutional RIGHT! Finally, under co. rev. stat. 98-2 (CJD) you are intitled to see all proof in court & to obtain all copies via your attorney ( even court appointed) MAKE THE ATTORNEY COMPLY!!!!!!!!!!

Its a war on the poor and these scumbags use it as an excuse to traffic in children. Its not just the judges either, its their enforcers. I don't see how a law enforcement officer can come into someone's home and remove their child (over trivial infractions) and still be able to live with what they have done. It is absolutely sickening.

Now don't get me wrong, there are legitimate claims of "intentional" abuse and these types of people should pay with their lives.

These forms of government intrusion and abuse will continue to get worse as the economy plummets. Injustice is a revenue generator for those whose livelihoods are dependent on this facade.(Judges, DA's, Lawyers, Social Services, Law Enforcement, Rehabilitation Centers)

Keep up the fight!

I lived there a few years ago. My experience is a bit different. The laws there do not help or nor do they support a spouse whom is being beaten,abused and drunkenness from the abuser. Even with proof,knowone will listen. he even admitted messing with several little girls. But, this was years later. How sick! He even had multi-sexual relationships with other troops. And even being a military spouse at the time, again not a soul cared or did anything to help. This is why I am no longer married to the a..hole due to his abuse,and drunkenness daily. I regret and very ashamed to have even been part of the military. The miltary, and all the persons who knew, all the phone calls, and information that was given to them. DID nothing! All these persons if seen again, are not welcome into my neibhorhood! They will be ousted by me! Sorry, I feel this way. But, laws should be there to protect not hurt! He even tried to take my life several times. The threats, knowone did anything. Even the command of the unit. All they cared about was themselves. How sad & stupid!
All I did for others was help them, even the one with cancer, or no place to live (was given freely), a few dollars to get them by, babysitting, ride to see the doctor and so on...
I even went and seen some of ex old military whatever you want to call them. And told them what had happened. One of them cried like a baby! He was one of them that did nothing! I can't believe we as American's are supporting such persons to fight for freedom! They is only a few who care..very few!
I wish I was allowed to spell the name on here so others could be warned just in case they run into my ex! He is very dangerous! Please, watch your children & be careful!

You are correct! They do not care! But, being I had proof through medical. Yet, they were so stupid to understand.
I think one of their problems were they could not read or they just did not want to help. I guess they did not have enough of those bouncing things...I'm sure you know what I mean!

Hey. I have been reading over this and my issue is different. My step child is being abused by her mother. We have had prior concerns, but no proof... UNTIL her room mate told us (a 15 minute recording) of everything that had been going on. She thought as parents we should know.
SO... I have this recording. i make a report crying about my stepdaughter. they take it.
I called the PD. The officer listened to the whole recording. He knew then this was a big deal

so ... I called back DHS and asked them to please listen to the recording about the abuse that is going on with my stepchild. 6 differnt times, 4 different people later ... nope, they will not listen. not even on the hotline.
I have all of my conversations recorded. Would any of you like to hear it and give me some advice?
I am about to go to jail for going to her moms house and taking her away myself.
Thanks in advance

Fremont County is just as bad if not worse. It is very much a money making venture. For every child in foster care, they receive federal funding to provide for the care; they then go after the family that they took the children from for the cost of care in child support. They earn $2 for every $1 they spend.

Make a gesture to take it to the Press! Beware, the cops they are very slack when it comes to help. I know this too well! Beware, carry a recorder for conversations with those whom you talk to (only) about your situation. Again be extra careful!

Holly McCarrver-Sorry you are going through this type of situation. Make a BIG gesture to go to the press! Be extra careful, if you do. The cops are slow to respond when someone is in your type of situation. They become very judgmental instead of dealing with the issues. I know this too well! As for legal advice, this may help you. It would not hurt to speak to someone in that area (they know) the laws. Carry a recorder for only conversations concerning your situation. This would be a plus! Etra careful is the key! Do not let your guard down! I hope something is done to take the child away from the abuse!

She is also accepting christmas gifts for her own children who are in the custody of cps.

Child Protective Services located in El Paso County, Colorado Springs, Colorado, often will take children out of the home without good cause. Once CPS gets involved in a family's life, it takes two years before the heartache ends. It usually begins with some gossip to CPS and often children are taken from the home by police and put into a foster home for months at a time. If the parents do not have adequate income for a decent attorney, children can be adopted out or become wards of the state within one year. Facts and real evidence are not needed in El Paso County family court. CPS requires parents to go to counseling and the counselors divulge personal details straight to the social workers regarding personal, emotional, or family problems. Many of the judges, police, social workers, and attorneys are corrupt in El Paso County. If parents rely on court appointed attorneys, this is a sad mistake, since these types of attorneys often do not take their jobs seriously. Judges in family court often take away parental rights for no cause and end up wrecking the lives of families who were once good families. Social workers often have dysfunctional childhoods which makes them behave like tyrants toward parents. If you are in a bad marriage, have alcohol problems, or emotional problems, get help. We all need help from time to time. No person or family is perfect. Get help without the aid of county employees. They cannot be trusted. There have been many cases of social workers being harmed or injured, and usually this is due to abusive and violent tactics of CPS. I have heard about several CPS workers from Colorado Springs who were audited or arrested for tax fraud after being investigaed for failing to pay income taxes. Social workers are not honest, God fearing citizens, and by no means should you bring your personal or family problems out in public, unless you want to ruin the lives of yourself, your spouse, and your children. Stay far away from the CPS agency. They are hell on wheels and God will handle these types of vicious people as justice will be served.
What parents babies end up being born to is the roll of the dice. My sister worked at a reservation school as a special Ed teacher and those poor helpless children would be brought to school malnourished, with sores, dirty clothes and feces in their hair. The teachers who reported it would usually get trumped up complaints filed against them. Imagine that..you don't have enough time to bathe or feed your disabled child...but you have enough time to file a complaint! Some CPS are hateful, but there's gotta be a safety net.

My daughter was kidnapped out of Penrose Hospital by CPS social workers posing as hospital staff at Penrose. The staff at Penrose hospital on Jackson Street HELPED THEM DO THIS TO HER. Human Resources at Penrose Hospital 'apologized' to me over the phone and said,'what's done is done - we can't get involved with fraudulent medical behavior unless you sue us.'
The tragedy is that I had desperately taken my child to Penrose Main for emergency psychiatric help due to massive physical, sexual and psychological abuse suffered at the hands of her father and paternal grandparents, her maternal aunt and grandmother. My child never got the help she needed. The El Paso Co CPS worker who kidnapped her (Heather Kesser) worked with Amanda Hacker at a child trafficking site called The Children's Ark to prevent me from ever seeing her again.
These evil women (with the help of one Gloria Marquez of El Paso CO CPS) SWITCHED OUT MY CHILD'S ADMISSIONS PAPERWORK, making it appear as though she had been 'seized' from me on false grounds of 'parental insanity' charges.....and did everything they could to make it seem as though I had neglected her....even going so far as to stopp her life-saving seizure medicine and cause her to go into anaphylactic shock without ER care given to her. In fact, these evil women even refused her all medical care for her post-cancer therapy and THEN went on to make further false allegations about me, even unlawfully contacting my landlord, estranged family members, even going so far as to take my daughter's pedophile father's side in order to cover their tracks. THEY WERE WILLING TO PUT HER INTO THE HANDS OF A DOCUMENTED PEDOPHILE. During this time I fought tooth and nail to gain access to my daughter and then because I had the audacity to fight them so fiercely, they literally had me seized one morning when I was sleeping in my home. The brutal C/S police officers had premade notes given to them by Heather Kesser and Gloria Marquez in order to falsely force me into psychiatric commitment under a law that states I could be forced into psychotropic doping for years. I landed in Penrose hospital on false charges of insanity yet I was released by the Colorado State BHT in less than five minutes. My court appointed attorney gagged me silent (legally) at each hearing and helped the CPS make false allegations against me.
It gets worse: I was allowed to see my daughter only once in the past year and El Paso CPS's Gloria Marquez and Heather Kesser, along with court appointed attorney William Webb (and the covert help of 'Tina' and 'Amy' from The Children's Ark) TRAFFICKED my child out of state WITHOUT MY CONSENT OR KNOWLEDGE AND THEN BLOCKED ME FROM EVER FINDING OUT WHAT THEY DID TO HER. To this day I have no charges. I never have in the first place. I am labeled now an 'abandoned parent' and have no idea what to do to begin finding my child.
My life and heart are broken. I will never, ever be whole again. These people are evil and deserve nothing else than life in prison without possibility of parole. I hope someone does something about these criminals. They're nothing more than opportunistic predators who rape the lives of innocent women and children for financial and political profit.

See, my best friend's name is Miguel Bishop. He is being held in Yuma County Jail in Wray, Colorado. I just want to explain some of the things that have taken place for this man, for one thing, due to the color of his skin. Our prisons are full of persons who have been convicted of child molestation without any physical evidence ever introduced against them at trial. In other words, the typical evidence in which the state offers to convict a defendant, such as body fluids, blood, semen, hair, DNA, are not introduced at trial to link the accused to a crime. That is terrible! Criminal law codes have been rewritten to where in many cases, the child accuser does not even have to appear in court and face the accused. Instead, the state can offer the child’s testimony through a video tape made by agents of the prosecution CPS and corrupt Police. Instead of physical and medical evidence, the falsely accused are convicted upon theories, inferences, and speculation. Prosecutors secure convictions by manipulating the juries fear of releasing a child molester back into the community. To support this speculation, a biased child protective services caseworker will produce a video taped interview of the child. This is an outcry, it is easy to find witnesses who can place the accused in circumstances in which he was alone with the alleged victim. I say that because the step mom in this case has 2 times before had the same child lie and try to do this to others. I have the recordings and paper work for everything I state in here.

I know that if we can bring home our military from overseas in an area so needed of protection, we can help send this in the right direction to get help with getting Miguel out and those involved with the lies and not listening, like the Sheriff's office and Guardian Ad Litem, and CPS. Reports have been made with the ABA, Child Welfare in Colorado, CBI and FBI. They say and act like there is nothing they can help with. THEY CAN STOP THE USE OF THE “N” WORD for one! No report allowed by Miguel when he was continually threatened and harassed by another and called out his name. That is a hate crime! Yuma County Jail records every phone call and will not do a report with evidence from the phone call of this man. Instead they make the hate crime criminal a TRUSTEE!!! See the outcry here? This man can not even have family send hair product or facial cream for shaving bumps, yet they do not even put on commissary! Not only my niece, but myself as well have been asked absurd stereotypical question from the Detective “What does that man got that makes you girls love him more than a child?” Also but CPS with” Miguel sure did something for you that you would lie and call your great niece the liar. What was it that made you love him more than your family?” Now, with the Guardian Ad Litem, is the straw that broke the camel's back! See, my daughter was molested by my nieces ex husband, 21 years ago. She was 7 when it took place. We only found out back in August. I tried to tell the Guardian Ad Litem and she made fun of my daughter, who is disabled! On top of that, my great niece that told this lie, is living in Scottsbluff, Nebraska, with her molesting dad and molesting brother! The step mom is there as well. My two nephews were molested by the step mom's nephew and was sentenced to one year in prison (for 6 counts!) and served only 7 months and is registered sex offender. He still comes around the boys. This has been told and those in control brush it off. Do you see the injustice here?

I could keep going sir but I will stop and pray you call me, or someone does. May be that no one listens or reads this or maybe just that one will and the right thing can get done.

My ex is ery wealthy. He was able to afford a lawyer who got him off and he has not served any time behind bars. Despite the fact that the police, social workers and over 8 psycholgists have no doubt that my children were telling the truth and that this is one of the worst abuse cases they have ever heard,( one police officer was crying when he interviewed me), this judge would not grant us a restraining order!
My children were sexually abused, beatten, our dog was killed infront of us, I had a tooth punched out, i was raped analy after a surgery as I was so drugged up! This lasted 9 years! Yet I can not get any help from the courts!
